The manager Hannah was nice enough to give us a tour of the restaurant.

She showed us the downstairs area where they hold special events.

Soft yellow corn polenta with truffled forest mushroom

I think this was my favorite dish of the night, It is a simple dish with very fresh ingredients. The polenta really brings out the natrual Umami of the mushrooms.

Primi E Secondi:

Tortelli pasta filled with pumpkin in a brown butter and sage sauce, topped with toasted almonds

The Pasta tasted very fresh and the filling is just right for the Fall/Winter

Grilled Branzino Filet over Sauteed Brussels sprouts and roasted pumpkin puree

I like Branzino it is delicate and light flavor fish, the sprouts and pumpkin puree give it a nice balance and a seasonal feeling.

Panna cotta al cappucino con salsa al caramello e Grandella di nocciole

Probably my favorite dessert. It reminds me of a Japanese Pudding, but with more delicate and complex elements. the caramel and Grandella di nocciole really makes this the perfect dessert for those with a sweet tooth.

Overall Rialto is a very nice restaurant in a very historic and upscale neighborhood. The food taste very fresh with a great selection of beers and wines. I would recommend it to anyone in the area. Their fall menu is sure to be a success.
